'[OT] How to find pending patent?'

I'm not having any luck with either uspto.gov or gargoyle, how can I find a
list of pending (provisional) patents for a given company?

Thanks,
  Bill

I had a go around with the USPTO as well...

Me: "Hi, I'd like to know is XYZ company from Not Near Here has a pending patent on a device that Farnarkles"

Them: "Sorry Sir,  I cannot give that information out"

Me: "Hmmm, so if I understand this correctly... They can make a claim about a pending patent, and there is no way for me to verify that that is true. Yet its illegal to make a claim about a pending patent if one doesn't - but I can't find out if they don't?"

Them: "Yes,  I cannot give that information out"

Back and forth follows with enquiries about how the system can be policed and protected from abuse if this policy is in place etc

Me: "Well - I'd like to say thanks, but bye. Click.
Me: "Bloody bureaucrats."

....on the other hand....I do believe a patent agent can do a search and get that information.  Maybe I should ping an agent I know and ask.  Last time we talked at length...few years ago, he charged around $100 or so to do a preliminary search.

I believe that that's true.
You have one year of secrecy if you want it.
As it's trivially easy to include "stuff" in aprovisional
patent (at least here) then if they thought of it first it's
probably in their application.

I think that's how the situation is meant to work and they
are doing exactly what is intended.
